    Nope. The torque curves are different. I did 27k miles on my 2014. It had instant 50ft/lb torque from 2k up. When I opened the throttle, it just went. The 2018 hesitates until about 5k.

    I haven't had the inclination to fully experiment, but it does appear as if the 2018 is softer at low revs in the first 3 gears. Logically I can see why that might be: a lot of riders seem to like sitting in 1st or 2nd gear on city streets, and if they have full power at 20-30mph they might get themselves into trouble. Which is why I'm hoping that Dynojet can give us back some of that bottom end.

    With a little time n money...
    Whack on cable operated 44mm throttles from 2007 CBR, and standalone ECU... And see what it can make at WOT 🙂
    +If hardware limited or not.

    First few gears definitely affected by the modes.. honda released a graph showing exactly that..

    Interesting reading your observations on torque between the old and new bikes.

    It will stop me thinking about changing to the new model. The torque on the older bike is exactly where I want it to be.

    Would be most upset to find I'd lost that low revs grunt.

    Do you ride around in first and second then most of the time ???

    Your fuel consumption must be horrific.

    How much difference did it make to yours? Do you have dyno printout?

    Having ridden the NSC quite a bit now I'd agree that my 'old' '08 CB does feel nicer at the lower to mid-range revs with a very linear feel to the power delivery right up through- although it is set up well with Akra,decat, BMC air filter and PCIII and isn't by any means slow , but the NSC is more of a beast from 7k for sure.

    The trouble is, if you want to use the power from 7K up in fourth, fifth, or sixth gear you can wave goodbye to your licence.----------------------------------------

    Just to match the power of the older bike in the lower gears you would, it seems, have to race the engine and use more fuel.----

    In Australia, easily lose licence in 2nd gear 😄

    Fuel = fun?
